Overview

Ryan loves bikes - it's all he ever thinks about! Ryan also has Cerebral Palsy and will never be able to ride a bike of his own.

One of Ryan's favorite things to do is watch his older sister, Megan, ride her bike. Megan knows that, deep down, Ryan wishes he could be the one riding the bike. Megan finds a special bike made just for someone like Ryan, but her family cannot afford to buy one. Instead, Megan is left to entertain her brother with stunts that she can do on her bike - that is, until the day she breaks her arm while attempting a new trick.

Ryan is heartbroken that Megan can't ride her bike, but becomes devastated when he learns that she's afraid to get back on it! With Ryan's support and encouragement (and a special surprise for Ryan), Megan is able to overcome her fear and, together, they learn never to give up on their dreams.

Editorial Reviews

Kathleen Palmer
"A Heart Warming Book" - I know it may sound like a cliché but this really is a heart warming book. This is a story about a very special boy who, with the encouragement of his sister, doesn't let his disabilities get the better of him... Even when they keep him from doing what he wants to do most. Megan wants badly to give Ryan his dream but there may be too many obstacles in the way. In the end the love the siblings share wins the day. A good read for both young and old. Enjoy!
